When I drink wine and anti anxiety meds together I can sleep 12 hours. When I take the meds and vodka I wake up after 3 to four hours, why difference?
Danger!!!: Please don't mix those meds. They are dangerous together and as you report the results can be unpredictable. Talk to your doctor about sleeping meds. Much better choices out there. ...Read more
Not a good combo: Alcohol CAUSES elevated blood pressure, so you are doing something to help yourself while doing something to hurt yourself. If you are talking about an occasional glass of wine on an occasion, it isn't an issue. If you are talking about daily drinking of wine, it IS a problem, and can lessen the effect of the medication and worsen the problem. ...Read more
Depends on how much: If you are talking a glass or two, as long as you have no history of peptic ulcers, gastritis or heartburn, there is little likelihood that that amount of alcohol and an NSAID are going to cause problems. However, larger amounts of alcohol can increase the chance of gastritis and gastrointestinal bleeding, as well as reflux and heartburn. ...Read more
Enzyme lack: You have a deficiency of alcohol dehydrogenase, the enzyme that metabolizes alcohol. Consequently, with you, a little alcohol "goes a long way."

How much wine??: If you are using musinex, I assume you have an upper respiratory or sinus infection. Alcohol does reduce the ability of the body to fight off infection, and actually ultimately is dehydrating. Neither of these are good for any kind of respiratory infection. There are no interactions, and if you are talking about 1-2 wine glasses, no problem. Safe drinking limits in men are no more than 2/day. ...Read more
DEPENDS: Alcohol is fermentation of sugar. Wine is fermented grapes. So that means as a diabetic your alcohol consumption counts as sugar. Therefore may get elevation in blood sugar. Additionally, if there are problems with kidneys, liver, pancreas, excessive alcohol will cause further damage. In small amounts may be safe. Would consult your physician. ...Read more
It depends: Alcoholism is an addiction. If you drink wine, beer, or liquor in moderation and not because you have the urge that you must, that doesn't necessarily make you an alcoholic. If you drink regularly because you feel you need to, can't control your drinking, get withdrawal if you don't drink, get upset if people question you about it, or it affects your professional or personal life, then beware. ...Read more
Probably not: If you were given any type of sedation - and the vast majority of persons having a colonoscopy are - then it is unlikely to have left your system yet. Having alcohol coudl prove deadly. Wait longer before drinking; you were probably given some written instructions about this when you departed the colonoscopy suite - read tehm carefully; and later on if you do drink - do so in moderation. ...Read more
Depends: So the controversy with alcohol is heart vs breast cancer. So for women no more than 1 glass (5oz) per day but if you have a strong risk for breast cancer than no more than three glasses per week since more than that has been associated with breast cancer. I usually tell patients to keep it to about 3 at the most 4 and that usually keeps everyone pretty happy. ...Read more
It increases risks: And also depends on what you are on Prednisone for. The various things for which Prednisone are used are generally not favorably influenced by alcohol. In addition, Prednisone increases the chance of stomach ulcers and bleeding, which is further increased by alcohol. If we are talking a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack for bee sting or poison ivy and one glass of wine, no problem. But regular use of both may be. ...Read more
